Support for stroke victim Lisa Glennie was overwhelming on Thursday night as Toronto’s radio community and her friends and family came together to raise money for her continued recovery.
Hundreds attended a concert event at The Atrium at Corus Quay to rally around our colleague and friend Lisa Glennie. Last November, Lisa suffered a major stroke and is continuing to undergo costly therapy not covered by OHIP. Lisa’s husband, Roy Windhager, made an impassioned speech of thanks at the event and later told Zoomer Radio’s Jane Brown, “it’s all about staying positive, and keeping positive means you have to have a huge support system behind you and that’s family. But family can only do so much and you have this amount of friends that are behind you, that kind of love and support, just mentally, makes her that much stronger.”
Windhager says this is not just about his wife’s recovery. Lisa’s Journey of Hope is now a registered charitable organization with a goal to help others recovering from a stroke. “Let’s send a message out there to have some avenue for people to have a similar experience like this. They can come to us and hopefully we can help other people when Lisa’s up and running.”
